Hello! Im new here and I am currently making  a game in Bitsy (im still getting the hang of it) and I would like to know how to make the palette of a specific level change just by talking to a character...if there is any way to do that.

Hi!

There isn't a way to do what you're describing in regular Bitsy, but if you're open to adding hacks there are a couple of ways you could do this.

One is to use the javascript dialogue hack to change the colours of the current palette when they talk to the character [https://github.com/seleb/bitsy-hacks/blob/master/dist/javascript%20dialog.js]. Changing the colours in the palette is one of the example uses given near the top of the page.

Alternately, you could use the exit from dialogue hack, and have the player automatically move to a duplicate room with a new colour palette when they talk to the character [https://github.com/seleb/bitsy-hacks/blob/master/dist/exit-from-dialog.js]

you could make a exit bellow the characters feet as soon as they reach the desired npc that takes them to another room with a different colour pallet and if you want it to be there only when you're by the character then you can make exits surrounding the character that take you back to the previous room with a different colour pallet
